Yeah, that's normally how you connect your UPS, but does it still give those options shown by Tony when not using Powerchute?

BTW thanks for the guestbook post. Much appreciated :)

This is for my desktop system (the one listed in my System Specs). And the panel I posted is what is shown when the UPS is connected to this system via USB.

Make sure you get version 3.0.0.1. Any thing below may cause UAC prompts.

New version fixed UAC prompts every time windows 7 loads?
i still use 2.2 version.
every time windows 7 loads 3 version shows UAC prompt

That's why I specifically said use version 3.0.0.1 The UAC issue during startup is supposed to be fixed with that version - APC Discussion Forums : PCPE 3.0 ... I know it is for me.

You can download 3.0.0.1 here - Software / Firmware. Note that you need to register and log in to download from there.

Anyway it continues and you want to use the program without the UAC prompts see this tutorial and my issue with Powerchute 3.0....

Tutorial - Task - Create to Run a Program at Startup and Log On

My post - Task - Create to Run a Program at Startup and Log On

At any rate 3.0.0.1 did get rid of the startup UAC prompts for me. However it should be noted that I still get a prompt if I click to open the control panel.

I'm also not using the above fix since moving to 3.0.0.1.

You could download the APC PowerChute Personal Edition 3.0.0.1 at the APC link below without having to register or login. You would just need to select it, download it, and install it. :)

Also I must be missing something as I don't see the actual software link. All I see, and you have circled, is notes and documentation

Never mind I got it, and yeah you didn't need to register going that route.

It uses the same wording for the link, but it's not the same URL address for the link.

There should be a Download button to the right of that to actually download the PowerChute. I just had that part boxed in red to help point out which one to use the Download button for. :)

Yeah it is a bit confusing. I just know when I went to get the software it had me register through the link I provided. Don't understand why they make you register through one link but not the other

Stupid.

+1 to you :)

Yeah, that didn't make sense to me either why you have to register at your link and not mine when they are both from the same site.
